the president will likely reference coke and apple for their latest plan to move manufacturing back to the u.s., but that is not the whole story. coke recently announced a plan to make the new macintosh and the u.s., but there are a tiny part of apple's business. apple's primary product, the ipad, iphone account for nearly three-quarters of the company's sales and are all made in china at places like fox con. that's not going to change a time soon. because as steve jobs once said denton cook echoed, you cannot find that many americans to hire. i bet there are just a few american engineers out there that would disagree, but they probably aren't looking at being paid $18 per day. mr. president, instead of dividing the ceo of the world's biggest company, what you bring in small business owners who are dealing with her policies the in and day out. while they're there may be to listen to what they have to say you. that's my "2 cents more," and that's it for tonight on "the willis report." thank you for joining us. gerri@foxbusiness.com for complete coverage of the president's state of the union add

right now. he's going to tell us a little bit about what we should expect from the president and what he'll be talking about. obviously, chris, gun violence has been a major issue in chicago for many, many months now and the president has been called to this question, why hasn't he dealt with more forcibly in his remarks in a few moments, chris? >> reporter: that's right. it sets off in the '80s where he began his career as a community organizer. he would become a state legislator and u.s. senator. the connection is great. he still has a home here. the 15-year-old hadiya pendleton was killed a mile from where his job is. the connection is very real for him. the gun violence rate is one of the highest in the country. the poverty rate in the south side of chicago where he will be speaking today, where he was once a community organizer, one of the highest in the country. we've been here a couple of days, talking to community organizers. they say the need has never been greater. so when the president comes here, politically the main thing is to give his message from the state of the union an
of cyber attacks against u.s. companies. dagen: the white house is considering fines and other trade penalties against china. peter barnes has the very latest from washington. peter: the administration is expected to release its own reports. attorney general eric holder will be holding a news conference on this this afternoon. the u.s. is trying to step up efforts to prevent chinese hacking which have hit dozens of u.s. companies. the second report increasing pressure on the administration to take more forcible action against the chinese for what experts say have been years of systematic x-men nosh. these new programs between u.s. intelligence agencies and companies will take time to roll out. connell: peter barnes in washington, d.c. for us. obviously, this is becoming a bigger and bigger story for us. watch this. >> we have also, regularly and repeatedly, raised our concerns at the highest level with the chinese government about cyber theft. including with sr. chinese officials and the military will continue to do that. connell: former navy seal is with us. you have heard the gover

. following the consequences of the drought last year, the president directed us to create a drought task force, made up of all federal agencies, to try to mitigate the impacts and effects of drought. that led us to begin thinking at usda about steps we can take to help producers during a difficult time. we took a series of steps to try to mitigate the consequences. we opened up crp land, and changed premium payments, things of that nation -- that nature. it also got us thinking -- were there other steps, other things we should be doing, to provide help and assistance? it occurred to us perhaps we should be focused more acutely on the need to encourage multi- cropping through the united states, in order for us to do a better job of conservation, to create biomass that could be a revenue source, and to potentially allow us to conserve precious water resources, which would in turn allow us to get through these drought circumstances in a more favorable circumstance. we have begun a process of looking at ways in which we could provide assistance. you will be fortunate to hear from a fellow by
terrorism advisor under his watch. became the first american targeted for death by u.s. drone strikes in yemen. his son and another american killed weeks later. an unclassified memo leaked this week says it is legal for the government to kill u.s. citizens abroad if he believes there are leaders engaged in operations aimed at killing americans even if there's no evidence of a specific imminent attack. 11 senators most of them demanded the white house provide legal justification. there is bipartisan concern about the program. >> here you have a senior unaccountable doj official who makes the determination that recent activities lead him to conclude he's an imminent threat. not to torture him but to kill him. i am troubled any time government is as nontransparent as this. >> we conduct those strikes because they are necessary to mitigate on going national threats. and again, save american lives. these strikes are legal. they are ethical and they are wise. >> at the direction of president obama, the justice department will give that secret memo to members of the house and senate intellig
been an important opportunity for us to really put some considered thought into the proposal. what you have in front of you is better than airplane reading. there are some suggestions in this energy 2020 document that people will look at and they will argue and they will say -- that is one person's view. that is true, that is true. but while we are trying to do is not give you a legislative package starting with initiatives that we are going to kind of clicked off as we move forward. this is really designed to be a discussion blueprint. we want to try to change the conversation. one of the reasons we have to think about changing the conversation is because the energy paradigm has really shifted. think about where we were one decade ago. it was all about scarcity, shortages, and how much dependent we were on foreign sources for our oil. fast forward to where we are today. those once thought of import terminals are looking to the export terminals. we have made considerable gains in terms of our own energy independence, to the point where it is no longer just a slogan that we are talking
your e-mails include john telling us that he is baffled about fixing social security. he says pass a law stopping the payroll taxes from going into the general fund. sometimes those guys just every pass. mark says the age for social security needs to be raised. that is the only way to solve it. finally, the lunchbox cops are targeting fried foods. cafeterias will no longer serve 100,000 workers fried chicken, concise, fried fish, and help these workers cope, the usda has hired a full-time dietitian on site. of course, we were paying for it is taxpayers. here is the best part. this whole plan is only for a few buildings. if workers want some french fries, they just have to walk a block to the energy department where the french writers are still bubbling. that is my "two cents more". that is all we have for tonight. we will see you back tomorrow. lou: good evening, everybody. the president today spending political capital by the bucket full. pushing hard for gun control. despite the fact that the murder rate in america has dropped to a 50 year low. he called for more and higher taxes
